(Hebron, Ky.) - A major aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul company has opened a new hangar in northern Kentucky.
Miami-based FEAM Aero opened its new facility at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport on Wednesday.
The company has operated at CVG since 2015 and currently employees more than 200 technicians servicing DHL, Amazon and passenger aircraft.
"As aviation and aircraft maintenance services continue to be in high demand, we're grateful to CVG Airport for understanding the need for our services, and for allowing this hangar to be part of the economic and innovative growth of the airport and state," said Cam Murphy, FEAM Managing Director. "Not only will this facility help us to expand our services and provide high-quality aircraft services to our clients, but this investment represents our commitment to create more jobs and build opportunities."
The new 103,000-square-foot hangar will create more than 100 high-paying aircraft mechanic jobs with an average estimated salary over $70,000.
The new jobs will make the CVG operation FEAM’s largest in the U.S.
“Among CVG’s strategic goals are to grow air cargo operations, and develop available airport land, both of which are achieved with this project,” said Candace McGraw, CEO, CVG. “We’re delighted that FEAM and Lynxs chose this site to support the rapid cargo growth at CVG. We are grateful for the strong partnership and look forward to sustaining this success.”
